What I've done is do a ratio between bullet weights and load data. I.E. 130g bullets using IMR 4350 my speer manual shows a range of 59.0 to 63.0, my Nosler manual shows 140g bullets using a range of 61.0g to 65.0g of IMR 4350. So start your loads at the low end. You can do the same with other powders.
You also might find the load data on the Hornady web site. I switched from accubonds to 162g Hornady and love the accuracy.
Hope this helps,
Bill

Cameron, I have just tried some of the 139 Interbond in my 7 mm mag and they shoot OK. Have been the route of working up loads and again, just OK in comparison to the accuracy I have gotten from the Accubond, but let me tell you what they will do to a HOG!!!!!
Load data is out of the Hornady Sixth Edition, Page 328. Using IMR 4350, Max load is 62.0 grains while Minimum is 52.9 with a published MV at 2700 Min. - 3100 at Max. Have used RL-22 as well in this load with like performance using published max load of 68.0 grains @ 3200 fps....Minimum load for RL-22 is listed as 56.8 grains at 2700. If you have some RL-19 you can try their max load of 66.7 gr. @3100 fps while minimum load listed at 58.4 gr @2700 fps. Good luck. Again all above loads are straight out of the Hornady Sixth Edition Vol. 1. Lots of other powders to goof with as well.
